Here it is, the second album of Berlin based electro pop artist Lie Craze, five years after the release of her positive reviewed debut album "Never Played With The Cool Kids" in 2009. Lie Craze's music has often been described as both catchy and honest, musically and lyrically. "Lyrics are very important to me. When I hear a catchy pop tune but the lyrics are just that same outworn sentence about love or la la la all the time I get really upset over the waste of a good...

From the leanest of the Fwonk elite, we present to you Derams of Lithotripsy - an LP epic with all the trimmings. Fat, bone, and gristle washed down with a few delectable shots of thick, warm blood. Recorded over a single week when our Lord and Master left our virtual residence for sunnier climes, this 18 track ode to a lost Chieftain removes the need for polish, replacing it with raw dynamism and reflexive potentiality.

tOtALcULt's Psyche Hop EP began life as a series of collaborations with three MCs from across the globe. However, a hectic schedule of "pounding 40s", "blowing trees", and "keeping it real" meant the international vocalists had no time to actually record any vocals. So, here is a collection of instrumental tracks which sees spacey melodies sparkling over rolling hip-hop beats while elements of slo-mo disco and psychedelic rock drift in and out of focus.

poppy nogood produced these four ambient tracks using voice, guitar, bass, drums and violin, recorded through a laptop and Ableton Live.

This collection is the introductory début by Imploded View, aka Jerome McCormick. this is not forward in going backwards with this exciting blend of experimental electronic music. Although the music here could be refered to as IDM, it's not a term that Imploded View is comfortable with. There's a whole manner of synth washes, retro in style for the most part, and hooks which are both catchy and un-catchy at the same time.

Andrulian has created something special with The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair. All sound elements were initially forged using the Virtual ANS software synthesiser that analyses images into microtonal sound. All sounds were derived from the one image, by Laura Woermke. This was then tweaked, manipulated and arranged using the Hollyhock II DAW, using granulation, looping, generative rhythms. The end result is an album that defies categorisation - it is a hugely daring piece of deconstructed...

high dart went part way back to the roots and part way to space. The sound of 809 is spacey-rough, trippy and sometimes there's a little glint of well-camouflaged cheesiness. and guitars! while the LP emerged, a lot of synths were oscillating. what else should they have done? So, 809 is a four dimensional object. To us nothing but a lot of time slices. It can be seen as a tram that takes you down a 40 minute long route through 11 zones inside the abstract.

Everyone knows that California is the best US state. That's why the Sages of Fwonk, under the direction of Katarrhaktes, have banded together to produce 17 songs in a compilation which eulogises its greatness.

Transcription Factors is a collection of songs created using a sound tracker that contains conserved sequence elements from songs made over the past decade. Similar to the way a 'transcription factor protein' binds to a DNA sequence and limits the transfer of what genetic information will be passed on, preserved musical sequences help regulate what will be passed along to future generations of songs.

Cagey House has been unleashing strange sounds on the netlabel scene for several years. Each track on this particular album began as a single phrase.
